Hastings, December 12, 1823


I have the pleasure to enclose a draft for Forty Two Pounds £40 for attendances and medicines as charged in your accounts to my father and myself and £2 including the accounts to Miss L. Chaloner and Mrs. Milward.

We intend to return to Beckenham by the end of January. Miss Byron's health appears so completely re establ[ished] that I hope we shall not have any reason to regret her removal from the sea-side. I have had as scarce a cold as I have had last year at Beckenham and am sorry to say in answer to your kind enquiries that my general health is not improved.

With our united best wishes,

Believe me yours,

A Noel Byron.

Ps. Be so good as to send a receipt seperately for the 16 shillings and sixpence which forms the balance of the £21 to Miss Chaloner.
